The Wraith (1986)
Charlie Sheen scored some hits in the 1980s: “Red Dawn,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “Young Guns,” “Platoon” and “Major League.” But only one movie featured him as a resurrected racer with a killer Dodge M4S Turbo Interceptor. It’s “The Wraith!”
Independent films in the ’80s were wild, and “The Wraith” is no exception. Antifreeze-chugging punks, made-up slang and something called a “digital radio killer” didn’t seem strange in a time when Randy Quaid could play an indifferent sheriff, bullies could just own girls and cars could put themselves back together with zero explanation.
In this episode, Big D quizzes Gene on the names of Arizona landmarks; Gene explains how “The Wraith” killed one of its cameramen; and both Shat hosts agree the hero of the movie is a jerk.
